Really interesting and well thought out article gets 2 comments, whereas a boring poke at the Scousers nets 200+

I think maybe starting all 4 leaves us a bit exposed in defence. Saying that, the only games we’ve lost have been against quality opposition, Wolves aside.

Can’t wait to have them all back and firing, that Chelsea game was a joy.

good article mate.... i would expect those four to start the remainder of our games once Dele is fit... i would expect our record to improve with them all in the team over a sustained period of time. All four have had slightly disjointed seasons what with injuries to Dele and kane, Sonny playing in asia and all four coming off the back of the WC

From an outside POV I'm not sure all four has the best balance. There's not much in the way of defensive support or wide play

They are our attacking options, Son plays wide, the defensive duties are left to the likes of Winks, Dier, Sanchez, Toby and Verts.

It's difficult to accomodate all 4 in the first XI.

Kane wants to play up top on his own. Son is good out wide on the left, but he's soo much better in Kane's position.

Dele behind Kane and Eriksen out on the right. Again, Eriksen is wasted in a wide position, his best position is right behind the striker. Dele simply isn't a wide player.

Even if all 4 were 100%, I doubt they'd start many games together.

Sissoko - Winks - Eriksen
-------------Dele
-------Kane-----Son


Sissoko gets up and down and covers a lot. Doing a lot of great defensive work. Eriksen playing as a playmaker slightly deeper but most advanced of the 3.

Dele making runs in behind Kane and Son. Kane playing as all round forward, Son using his pace.

Imagine if Davies was left back. We'd get destroyed.

thats what we have been playing this season, probably why Davies has struggled. We could use the Eriksen money for a Sissoko like LCM who can use the ball better, as well as a LB and RB.

Suppose. Looks better with Rose and Trips/Aurier either side of them and have 3 at the back.

Have to drop either Dele or Eriksen though..

interesting article, but some of your stats are not comparing like for like. e.g. you are including cup games when it suits you, and excluding them when it doesn't.

e.g. you talk about losing games when Alli was missing, some being CL games.... but then say we won all 6 without Kane... when we lost 2 cup games...

I would say that these 4 against the top teams seems like it should be the selection but as LFC & Utd exploited, our FBs have little protection and when they go up field the spaces behind them are vast.

Because Alli/Son come narrow, the FBs have to be advanced to provide the width and we are open in those areas on the counter attack.

I include UCL because more or less we play a strong team. Poch will rest and roatate a lot in the domestic cups and will often see a lot of changes so the team is weaker all round, and not just because one of those 4 is missing.

Kane started his first league cup game this season for 2 years, thats how little he plays in it.

Vs Palace we had Skipp Nkoudou Llorente Lucas KWP, Gazzaniga playing. Comparing that to UCL or league games would not be comparing like for like.
